I have been trying to setup icinga2/icingaweb2 in our office following exclusively the official documentation. The base system is openSUSE (Leap 42.1) and the webserver is nginx.

Everything works smoothly and I can install all elements without problem after fixing one error: in packages.icinga.org/openSUSE/ICINGA-release.repo $releasever searches for "Leap 42" and there is no such folder, so I replaced that with a static "13.2" which is currently the latest release for openSUSE. For the installation of icinga2 I followed the documentation and everything worked out without errors.

To install icingaweb2 I follow this official document. The problem appears when I get to the point "Preparing Web Setup" - it looks absolutely straight forward with no option for error even for the biggest noob.

As it states, I try to access .../icingaweb2/setup and receive Error 404. The icingaweb2.conf file is in the right place, nginx/php5 is up and running, all databases are in place... Everything looks correct.

Has anyone had this problem or a suggestion from where it might originate? I could submit additional data if requested. Thanks in advance.

  • What does the nginx error log say? – EEAA May 13 '16 at 12:45
  • This: [error] 1699#1699: *1 open() "/srv/www/htdocs/icingaweb2/setup" failed (2: No such file or directory), client: x.x.x.x, server: localhost, request: "GET /icingaweb2/setup HTTP/1.1", host: "x.x.x.x" – Georg Hekt May 13 '16 at 13:22

We primarily focus on the SLES releases for SuSE at the moment, so the OpenSuSE releases might not be up to date.

There is however a package maintained by the SuSE guys over on OBS.

The package seems to install icingaweb2.conf somewhere into the Apache's config.

Make sure that the file is there and Apache is reloaded (without errors).

  • I've used nginx instead of apache and generated the icingaweb2.conf for nginx. It's also in the appropriate place as per the documentation. – Georg Hekt May 13 '16 at 13:24
  • I see, since I can't see your nginx config, I can only guess your mistake: /srv/www/htdocs/icingaweb2 - thats not the way the RPM is installed - that would be /usr/share/icingaweb2 – lazyfrosch May 13 '16 at 13:40
  • In /etc/nginx/icingaweb2.conf the path is specified as /usr/share/icingaweb2. Do I have to specify this path in nginx.conf too? – Georg Hekt May 13 '16 at 13:54
  • You posted above: [error] 1699#1699: *1 open() "/srv/www/htdocs/icingaweb2/setup" failed (2: No such file or directory) That suggests the nginx config is not working or not loaded. – lazyfrosch May 13 '16 at 14:15
  • I was trying to figure out which line of nginx.conf would call on /etc/nginx/icingaweb2.conf and the only part I could see is "include conf.d/*.conf" but there's no conf.d folder. Unfortunately the documentation wasn't very specific on this. Could you suggest where should I look for an edit please? Otherwise nginx status is running, syntax of conf is okay. – Georg Hekt May 13 '16 at 15:14

Found two errors:

  1. The generated icingaweb2.conf wasn't being loaded and I just copied its content into nginx.conf;

  2. In php-fpm.conf I had missed a few points so it was not listening on any unix socket (listen = /var/run/php-fpm.sock)

Basically errors because of my very limited experience with nginx/php. Thanks for your suggestions and help!
